Surprisingly fun

Let's just start off and admit that this is a kid's game. If you have problems with that, then just move along. With that out of the way, this is an extremely refreshing and fun game. Yes, it's short (I finished it and got the platinum trophy on a Saturday). Yes, it's based on movie characters, but it doesn't retell the movie story. Like Toy Story 3, there's a surprising amount of variety and fun to be had. If you like action/adventure platformers in the vein of Ratchet & Clank, and don't mind a linear story, it'll be a wonderful diversion from the normal games in your queue.

As for the negative with this game, the 2D portions of the game (rendered in a 3D environment) felt as if they should have been 2.5D (think of Little Big Planet), and may have been close, but the mechanics just felt a little off. Other than that, I really can't find anything to complain about with this gem.

I was so surprised this kid/movie game didn't suck. lol
If all movie and kid games had this much put into it, they wouldn't get a bad rep..
Game may be short but the graphics are ok and any gamer who grew up in the 80s will love the second to last level.

Kinda reminds me of the old GEX games!

Anyway, fun game to play even thought its way off from the movie. Solid and lasting gameplay and it stayed fun until finish.

Trophy hunters, easy platinum with minimum grinding. Only have to grind for the sheriff coins, and i suggest maxing out the star upgrades and playing through the "nowhere and back" level over and over as the end of it provides a LOT of easy coin.
